Januzaj: It felt good to score a goal

by Sam Peoples

Adnan Januzaj ended his involvement in Manchester United’s Asian leg of the tour with his first senior goal against Kitchee FC.

His man of the match winning cameo saw him come of the bench to spearhead United’s impressive second half performance in Hong Kong.

The 18-year-old has been one of the stars of the tour so far. He has impressed David Moyes in the opportunities given to him and admitted that he was glad to get his first goal in the first team.

Speaking to MUTV, he said: “It felt good to score a goal, it was a good cross from Alex and I was in the right place to put it in.

“I think we all did well, we kept the ball and that is what made the difference. We scored early in the game and that is what made the difference in this game.

“I have done some good stuff (during the tour) and I hope to keep going. That is what I am going to do. I am going to work hard and try to keep doing what I am doing.”

Every United fan loves watching the rise of a youngster who has spent time in the academy. There is nothing more traditional to the ethos of United than seeing a talent blossom from the roots all the way to the top.

Januzaj has all the hallmarks of being a great player. At 18, he is a far from finished product but he has polished his reputation out in Asia and certainly enhanced his chances of first team football this season.
